Reasons to consider the
AMD Opteron 43GK HE

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 8 MB vs 2 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 2.6 GHz vs 1.3 GHz 2x higher clock speed
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More cores 8 vs 2 6 more cores; run more applications at once
Supports more CPUs in SMP configuration 2 vs 1 Twice as many CPUs in SMP configuration
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.6 GHz vs 1.3 GHz 2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More threads 8 vs 2 6 more threads
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.6 GHz vs 1.3 GHz 2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
